Is the antenna motor still working at all, or is it dead? The plastic teeth inside the antenna mast could be chewed up as well, which prevents the motor gear from pulling the antenna down. If the motor is not working at all, it could have been wired incorrectly after the accident.

Sounds to me like your antenna mast needs replacing - fairly common.

The dealer sell the mast for around $30 bucks.

Go to Volvospeed.com for illustrated instructions if you'd like to do it yourself.

Not uncommon for the antenna mast to need replacing - sounds like the motor is A'OK.

Good Luck !
